Crowns

“I am quite pleased with my new smile. I had an old crown that no longer matched my teeth and several of my other teeth had gotten chipped. I also had a big space between two of my teeth.  I had become quite self conscious about smiling, but now I will be able to smile proudly whenever I want. My new teeth (crowns & veneers) look better than my old ones ever did and Dr. Pete & his staff were great through the entire process! Thanks for the great smile!
Nancy F.

“A complete delight! I had 3 crowns placed today – nothing but success…always a good experience with Dr. Pagano. I am motivated to keep my teeth really clean.
Dr. Barbara F.

“I was very happy with the service and timely manner the office was able to do for me. I travel and have very little time in the United States. I was able to get my first visit, root canal and crown all in a two week time frame. Thank you very much.”
James S.

“I’ve had all of my teeth capped. It’s been about 10 years now- the upper set was done in 1998 and last year I had them replaced as they were pulling away from the gums. In 2000 I had the lower set done as I was so impressed with the uppers. I’ve had less trouble with my teeth since then and I really like my new look.
Evelyn P.

“I came in to get a filling and receive the best treatment. I got a root canal that did not hurt and was almost painless. My crown is very pretty and it did not hurt one bit. The whole staff is very kind. I will tell all my friends and family to come here.
Ronda T.

“My crown for my front tooth looks great !  I was very nervous about how it would look but you would never know it wasn’t my tooth !  This experience at Dr.Pete and staff is always great !  Never any pain and they are always very patient.”

Dental Implants

“Painless Pete” has been my dentist for the past ten years. At age 63 I lost my first tooth. I opted for a state-of-the-art IMPLANT. “PAINLESS PETE” has made the whole experience a pleasant venture.”
Larry S.

“Today was a happy day for me. My implant work has been completed. Peter and his assistants worked very hard and long to get my implants just right. Peter explained to me how important it is to floss and brush and keep everything clean. Even thought I am not a very good flosser, I am trying real hard to do a good job because I know how important it is.  Right now that all has just been completed, my mouth feels really good and comfortable. I am very pleased with all the work devoted to me. Also I am very happy that all has been completed. I am looking forward now to eating on both sides of my mouth and enjoying all my favorite foods. Thank you Dr. Pete!”
Ruth A.

“My implant surgery was a total success. Doctor Pagano & his staff were marvelous in handling my procedure which was complicated by an allergic reaction to a medication prescribed by a different doctor. Dr. Pagano rushed into his office on a Sunday afternoon and stopped bleeding that had occurred. His service has always been exemplary.”
Tony B.  

“I had an implant put in and the experience was great.  I was very apprehensive about the whole procedure, but Dr. Pagano was very patient with me and took it slow which I appreciated.  The whole process went great and very smooth no problems at all.  The thing I most appreciated was that I was told what the next step would be at every point , it helped ease my anxiety.  Now that I’ve had my implant for awhile , I can’t even tell the difference.”

Extractions and Oral Surgery

Each time I have had a tooth pulled elsewhere it has been a horrible experience. This time, it was not. Dr. Pagano was great. He talked to me and made me very comfortable. I have never had a good experience at the dentist until now. He was great!!!”
LaTrisa J.S.

“Joey was very afraid of needles and dental equipment. On his first visit with Dr. Pagano, Joey was able to go by himself with the Doctor and assistant and receive injections and have a tooth pulled without me. I was so pleased. Things only improved from that point.  We have had several appointments with both Joey and Jonathan and with each appointment they both improve. Due to Dr. Pagano’s technique with children our experience has been very positive. Both boys became more courageous.”
Elizabeth P. – (Mother of Joey)

“After having 2 wisdom teeth pulled in one sitting, I am a happy camper. Dr. Pete was fast and efficient removing the two perpetrators. Afterward there was minimal discomfort in the affected areas, little swelling and complications that could only be attributed to the work done by a skilled professional. Thank you Dr. Pete and Staff.”
Guy M.

“I came to Dr.Pagano to get my wisdom teeth pulled .  I was very apprehensive about the procedure.  Dr.Pete did an excellent job of helping me relax and even cracked some jokes along the way.  The actual procedure was quick and painless and Dr.Pete made sure I was never in any discomfort.  Thanks Dr.Pete!”

Fillings

“I travel to St Louis for the sole purpose of using Dr. Pete’s services. Broken filling, short notice, prompt response, excellent service from whole staff.Rebuild, resurface, repair, reshape old tooth all new. Thank you much.”
John V.W.

“Dr. Pagano and his team:
I must confess that I was dental phobic. In the past, the fear of making a trip to my dentist’s office was a mental agony and torture for me, and I still have awful memories of painful anesthetic injections that to this day make me feel tense and nervous. This anxiety has been preventing me from seeking dental care for several years.  However, the recent visit to your office for my filling has completely changed my outlook, and opened up a whole new dimension and experience for me in terms of visiting a dentist. You and your assistants made an extra effort to make me feel calm and relaxed throughout the procedure. I didn’t feel a single pinch from the needle and I felt comfortable the whole time.

Dr. Pagano, you used state-of-the-art technology to remove and replace my old fillings, and I am very satisfied and happy with your work. You were very professional, yet so personable, kind and thoughtful. I really appreciate everyone in the office; you all are so wonderful. Thank you very much for your great team-work; it was such a blessing for me.
Sincerely Yours,”
Wan-C.

“Usually the shots they give me right before a filling hurt. I especially hate when you can feel the needle in your cheek. BUT with Dr. Pagano I didn’t feel a thing. Seriously, the way he gives shots makes sure that you don’t feel a thing, and I’m very happy about that because that’s the part that scares me the most. Now even big babies like me don’t have to fear the filling.”
Vania

“Dentist, madman, witch doctor, miracle worker…it could be all of these. Dr. Pagano and his staff at the office are quite amazing. On a routine visit for novocain and two teeth to be drilled and filled something quite odd happened. I found myself with not just the two teeth worked on, but all eleven that needed work.  In less time than it would take for a walmart associate to change the oil in your car, the doc and his staff reshaped my mouth for a whole new smile. What a great crew, I was so impressed that I have started damaging my teeth on purpose just to come back in more often and see the results of their fine work.’
Jason G.

“I came in to get a filling and receive the best treatment. I got a root canal that did not hurt and was almost painless. My crown is very pretty and it did not hurt one bit. The whole staff is very kind. I will tell all my friends and family to come here.”
Ronda T.

“Thanks for taking care of this filling so quickly and painlessly. Looks good!”

Ronda T.

“Doc and his staff are miracle workers! I thought I was going to be without a front tooth, but I was only without one for about 10 minutes! I couldn’t believe they got the tooth back in so fast, and it looks just like it did before! One time I had some pain – the Dr. told me to put a moist tea bag and instantly the pain went away AND it stopped bleeding! If I’ve ever heard of miracles, he worked one! I have been going to him and his dad for years and Im glad of it!”
Maurie B.

Root Canals

“I was very happy with the service and timely manner the office was able to do for me. I travel and have very little time in the United States. I was able to get my first visit, root canal and crown all in a two week time frame. Thank you very much.”
James S.

“When I came in with this pain in my lower tooth, Dr. Pete said ROOT CANAL. I’ve only hear bad stories on root canals! But once again Dr. Pete proved them all wrong. It went like a breeze. I now have no more fear of the words ROOT CANAL. Dr. Pete is the coolest and greatest!”
Shirley J.

“I came in to get a filling and receive the best treatment. I got a root canal that did not hurt and was almost painless. My crown is very pretty and it did not hurt one bit. The whole staff is very kind. I will tell all my friends and family to come here.”
Ronda T.

“My root canal procedure was a great success. Everyone I know that has had this procedure has told me their nightmare stories, so I anticipated that I was definitely going to go through the same hell that everyone kept telling me I was going to go through. But Dr. Pagano with his experience and expertise on this procedure made my experience quite calming and relieved. I would recommend him to all my traumatized friends that had such a terrible experience somewhere else. Dr. Pagano – JOB WELL DONE!!!!”

General Experience

“Dr Pagano is a cut above the rest! I would never go to another dentist. He is the best dentist around. Not only is he great his office is like being in a 5-star hotel, it is very relaxing, and the service goes along with it, it is also 5-star!

John V.W.

“I’d seen two dentists and two orthodontists concerning discomfort I had been experiencing: For years, my teeth always felt pressured, and I felt like my tongue needed more room. I was repeatedly told there was nothing that could be done. Enter Dr. Pagano. Within two consultations, he assessed the situation, determined the problems and challenges, and developed a fairly simple and very affordable treatment plan. After wearing an appliance for a few months and then wearing invisalign ‘braces’ for another few months, I have total relief and a better smile as well. I’m really amazed that a ten-year problem has been treated successfully in such a short time. It’s actually been a pleasure – – Dr. Pagano and his staff are not only professional but really fun and welcoming.”
Jeanne L.

“Dr. Pagano’s attention to my nervous complaints before we started shows something of his skill and patience. He listened and responded even though he knew, as I did not, that I need have no fear. Thanks for a painless and competent visit.”
Andrew G.

“Before I was unhappy. My dentures did not fit properly, and it was getting to the point that it was hard to eat and even talk. My gums were wearing down. WOW, the difference now!! My lips pucker better and I feel good about myself. I smile bigger and better now. I can even eat corn on the cob!! Thanks Dr. Pagano!!”
Lisa S.

“I had braces for about 4 years, much longer than I would have liked to. At the beginning of my treatment my teeth were in pretty terrible shape. But after coming to Dr. Pagano to finish my treatment my teeth are much better. I can smile without being self-conscious and am much more confident. I’m so glad I chose to come to him!”
Brittany B.

“I was a sad little 13 year old when my family discovered Dr. Pagano’s office. My teeth weren’t too horrible, but a few were facing the wrong way. Because of the positioning of my teeth, my jaw was getting stuck. Dr. Pagano worked with me and I went through a treatment and now my teeth are straight as a straight line and I can chew carefree. I’m so happy to have my braces off and to have a smile worth showing.”

Headaches/TMJ

“Dr. Pete is a miracle worker. I have had headaches (migraines) forever. I didn’t know what it felt like not to have a headache. On my very first visit, Dr. Pagano looked at my X-rays and then asked me if I suffer from severe headaches. My mouth flew open. I looked at him, thinking in the back of my mind, is this guy a mind reader, fortune teller or what? After my treatment my head has not hurt. Thanks to Dr. Pete, I can’t use the excuse “I have a headache honey!”
Eleanor H.

“I had a 15 hour headache and almost cancelled my dental appointment because it hurt so bad. Then immediately, and I really mean immediately, after the treatment the headache was gone. I am still in awe.”
